Hole-In-One For Aboyne Golf Club Youngster Jamie Gibb
Aboyne Golf Club is celebrating after one of its emerging young juniors scored his first hole-in-one whilst representing the club in the Aberdeen and District Junior Pennant League (ADJPL).
Thirteen-year-old Jamie Gibb, playing off a handicap of 7, aced the 156-yard 12th hole using a 9-iron at Deeside Golf Club during the semi-final of the ADJPL against Royal Aberdeen Golf Club yesterday.
In a very closely contested match, Aboyne narrowly defeated the strong Royal Aberdeen team 3-2 with the final game coming down to 10-year old Hamish McLardy and his playing partner Nicolas Smith sealing a 2 & 1 victory in front of a large gallery.
Aboyne now face a tough challenge playing Cruden Bay on their home course on Sunday in the final after Cruden Bay beat Portlethen 4-1 at Ellon McDonald in the other semi-final.
